Hong Kong: Beijing quisling regime forces Tiananmen Square museum to close

“Hong Kong’s most controversial destination has been forced to close just two days before a hugely significant date in the global pro-democracy calendar. Located inside a nondescript high-rise building wedged between a gas station and a highway overpass in Kowloon, the June 4 Museum … commemorates the Beijing government’s crackdown against student protesters in Tiananmen Square in 1989. On June 1, Hong Kong officials from the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department (FEHD) visited the museum in the working-class area of Mong Kok and accused the organizers of operating a ‘place of public entertainment’ illegally. … tens of thousands of Hong Kongers normally gather in Victoria Park [on June 4] to remember the people who died in the crackdown. The vigil was canceled last year due to the coronavirus outbreak, and on Saturday a court sided with a police decision to cancel the event again this year, for the same reason.” (06/02/21)
